In 2001 Donna courageously moved to Florida to fulfill her love for the beach and begin a new chapter in her life. She was also employed by Hallmark for several years while living in Florida.
Donna loved her children and enjoyed the title of “Hockey Mom” or “Dance Mom” to Chris and Candice. She enjoyed decorating for the holidays, playing cards and board games, and when happy hour came, you could find her socializing with her many dear friends. Donna enjoyed making others feel special by sending them a card to let them know that she was thinking about them. She enjoyed dancing, going to the beach and travelling to various places. Above everything, she loved her grandchildren, her family, dear friends and enjoying Florida sunsets.
